Edwards Citizen of Year

Tax office waited 11 days before reporting loss County officials were still tight-lipped Thursday about the disappearance of a bank deposit bag from the Vance County Tax Office. Vance County Manager Jerry Ayscue said the bag, which contained as much as $6,000 to $7,000 in cash and several thousands more in checks, was first suspected to be missing on Dec. 17. He said the loss was reported to the sheriff’s department on Dec. 28. Ayscue did not elaborate on why 11 days passed before it was reported to the sheriff’s department. “According to Sheriff (Peter) White, the SBI (State Bureau of Investigation) is assisting with the investigation,” Ayscue said. County officials have declined to answer questions such as: • What is the total amount of missing cash and checks? • What procedures does the county use to deposit public funds? • Who is tasked with the job of transporting public

Daily Dispatch Publisher James Edwards is the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce’s Outstanding Citizen of the Year. “It’s rare for me to be at a loss for words,” the Henderson resident said to laughs from the audience after receiving his plaque Thursday evening at the civic organization’s 72nd annual banquet, held at Vance-Granville Community College. Edwards, in thanking the selection committee, said, “I’ll be honest with you: I sat there, hoping and praying that the person who is going to get this award tonight is the one that I nominated.” Edwards said that the award means much to him and added that, “I love Henderson. I love Vance County. I do what I do because of that love. “And I simply feel like that we all have that responsibility of making at least — playing some small role in making our place better. And so, to get an award for that — wow, that’s wonderful.” Edwards expressed apprePlease see EDWARDS, page 3A

OXFORD — An Oxford minister is now serving on the Golden LEAF Foundation’s board of directors. The Rev. Lacy Joyner was appointed by state Senate President Pro Tem Marc Basnight, D-Dare, at the recommendation of state Sen. Doug Berger, D-Franklin and who additionally represents Vance, Granville and Warren counties.

Joyner thanked Berger and said, “It is a wonderful honor to be appointed and I am very excited about the prospects of this new endeavor. Joyner This position will allow me to do what I value most and, that is, to help the people of North Carolina.” Berger said Joyner has committed a significant part of his adult life to the betterment of

Granville County, both as a minister and as an advocate for opportunities for the disadvantaged. Golden LEAF, which is based in Rocky Mount, was created in 1999 to receive half the funds coming to North Carolina from the tobacco master settlement agreement resulting from lawsuits against cigarette manufacturers over smoking-related diseases. Joyner replaced John Harmon, an attorney from New Bern whose four-year term on the

board had expired, Foundation President Dan Gerlach said. Basnight’s appointment of Joyner took effect Tuesday. Joyner’s term expires Nov. 30, 2013. The board is comprised of 15 members, with the governor, the speaker of the House of Representatives and the Senate president pro tem each having the power to appoint five members.

Ringing in the new year stress free By Gina DeMent Five County Mental Health

This time of year, many of us turn our attention to ways we can improve our lives. While resolutions often center on developing new habits that will get us into better physical shape, getting into better mental and emotional shape by reducing stress can provide huge rewards as well. Eating right and getting exercise generally top most people’s lists of goals for the new year. But this year, it might be wise to incorporate new habits that will reduce stress and increase happiness and overall life satisfaction. Here are some important steps you can take to be a happier, healthier and more relaxed you in the coming year: • Get enough sleep: being sleep deprived can be both a cause and an effect of being stressed. While stress can keep people up at night, operating on too few hours of sleep can make people less productive, more emotional, and more reactive to stressful events in their lives. This year, you can gain significant benefits by striving for better quality and greater quantity of sleep at night. • Take up a hobby: it’s important to keep learning, growing, and doing things you enjoy throughout your life. Having a regular hobby can provide a necessary outlet for mental stimulation and stress relief, and help you maintain a balanced lifestyle. • Increase your social life: we are, by nature,

social creatures, and the company we keep can have a huge impact on quality of life. Good friends and close family can celebrate with us during our best times and support us through our worst. A social network of healthy relationships can be a buffer against stress and provide many other benefits. However, conflicted relationships can cause additional stress and frustration, and even affect our health. This year, you can strongly improve your quality of life by seeking out healthy new friendships, improving the relationships you already have and letting go of relationships that drain you. • Get rid of clutter: living in chaos can create stress. Whether you’re overloaded by clutter, disorganized with your schedule, or carrying excess emotional baggage, disarray can make you feel scattered and rob you of resources. While many of us live in cluttered homes, for example, most of us don’t realize that the clutter can rob us of time (as we look for lost items), money (as we pay late fees on bills and things we can’t find) and peace of mind (as sitting in a cluttered room can drain your energy without you even realizing it). This year, you can take weight off your shoulders by being more organized with your time, giving away things you don’t need and maintaining your home as a haven. • Know your stress relievers: sometimes stressful situations seem to culminate quickly, and we can go from feeling fine to overwhelmed

in a very short period of time. When this happens, it impractical to stop your life to go practice yoga, get a massage, or try other effective but time-consuming stress relievers. It’s best to have a quick and effective way to turn off your fight or flight response and trigger your relaxation response • Be optimistic: many people don’t realize that the way they see the world has a heavy impact on their stress level, but it’s true that pessimism and negative self-talk can cause you significant amounts of stress. Whether you see situations as threats or challenge, beneficial or negative, stressful or exciting, is a matter of your point of view. Fortunately, your point of view can be changed with practice. How much happier, more productive, and less stressed could you be if you omitted some selfdefeating thought patterns? • Reduce job stress: is your job your greatest level of stress? It’s not surprising considering the long hours, heavy workload, and other factors that come into play in today’s workplace. However, some jobs are more stressful than others. Feeling overwhelmed and burned out by your job can add stress to virtually every area of your life. This year, one of the best things you can do for yourself is examine your work life and see what changes you can make in order to reduce stress. This may include finding tools to increase your productivity, changing certain aspects of your job, adding to your life outside of work

so you feel less stressed in general, or even examining whether you’re in the right field. • Have a plan for the future: while there’s a lot to be said for living in the moment, there’s a difference between being fully present in your life and feeling so overwhelmed by stress that your focus goes no further than how to get through the next day. You should be able to reduce your stress level so that you’re able to look into the future and chase your dreams. Do you have a strong financial plan in place? Are you expressing yourself as fully as you’d like? Are you on the path to where you’d really like to be with your relationships and personal growth? This doesn’t mean a set-in-stone blueprint, but a idea of where you’d like to be in the future so you can be growing in that direction.

EDWARDS, from page one ciation to his family and to The Daily Dispatch family. “So, I’m humbled. I’m honored. Thank you so much,” Edwards said, hugging his family members gathered nearby. Edwards was presented the plaque after last year’s recipient, Bennett Perry, detailed the publisher’s community service. Perry said when one looks at the organizations Edwards has or continues to be involved in, it looks like a list of most of the nonprofits in the community. In addition to the chamber, they include: • Relay for Life. • The Vance County Community Foundation. • Area Christians Together In Service (ACTS). • The Vance County Public School Foundation. • The Henderson Community Concert Association. • Crime Stoppers. • The Henderson-Vance Downtown Development Commission. • The Vance-Granville Home Builders Association. • The United Way of Vance County. • The Henderson Lions Club. • And First United Methodist Church. “In fact, if you have an organization that our 2009 citizen of the year has not served on, it is probably because he was not asked,” Perry said. Perry noted Edwards recently being recognized by the County Commission as a community hero.

“A very humble person, this person does not believe he has done anything out of the ordinary,” Perry said. “We simply believe that he is a citizen trying to be a good neighbor and friend. “Because of his humility, I hesitate to mention that he has been Lion of the year for two years, has been involved with Crime Stoppers since its inception, has served with the concert association for 15 years, served the chamber board for seven years, chairing several different committees before becoming board chairman in 2007,” Perry said. “Most importantly, he genuinely gets done whatever needs to be done with a great attitude and a contagious smile,” Perry said. “Not only does he volunteer, he assumes leadership roles in these organizations previously mentioned, therefore requiring even more valuable time,” Perry said. “He has been recognized by all organizations he is involved in as a tremendous contributor, especially by many friends at First United Methodist Church, where he has worked tirelessly for over 30 years, serving as lay leader and United Methodist Men’s president,” Perry said “He is also referred to as the person that gets it done, whatever the need,” Perry said.

State, regional developers tour Triangle North parks Economic developers from the N.C. Department of Commerce and Research Triangle Regional Partnership (RTRP) toured Triangle North’s four parks in Franklin, Granville, Vance and Warren counties Jan. 15 to view park improvements and receive an update on what companies need in sites to expand in the Research Triangle Region. “These are excellent parks — jewels for our rural areas,� said Vivian Powell, the commerce department representative for the 13-county Research Triangle Region, which includes the four Triangle North counties. “They are shovel ready, which is a big advantage for companies that are ready to make a move to relocate or expand,� Powell said. “Their location — so close to the metropolitan areas — is very desirable, particularly since there is so little undeveloped land in the core of our region.� Powell and Margie Bukowski, a statewide economic development representative for the commerce department, toured the Triangle North parks at the request of Debbie Lilly, vice president of client services for RTRP and the lead recruiter for Triangle North. Lilly was joined for briefings at each site by county economic developers, who are the local experts and lead developers for each site on the county level. “Triangle North’s network of parks offer a full range of sites that can meet the needs of new and expanding businesses,� said Lilly. “We have sites large and small, sites that front the interstate for maximum visibility and others that are secluded,

and each park offers some unique feature. “Triangle North Warren, for instance, is a mega site just off of Interstate 85, perfect for a major distribution and logistics facility,� Lilly said. “Triangle North Franklin offers an executive airport next door and a new 33,900-square-foot shell building. Granville and Vance County offer interstate frontage and close proximity to the main campus of Vance-Granville Community College, our major workforce development partner. And, of course, each of our parks offers the highest levels of state financial incentives available in North Carolina. That could translate into a $12,500 tax credit for every job a company creates in any Triangle North park.� Developers met with members of the Kerr-Tar Regional Economic Development Corp. (KTREDC) at a luncheon at the Henderson Country Club, thanks to local business supporter Tommy Hester, president of Prim Residential Developers Corp. The KTREDC is the nonprofit corporation formed by the four counties to own and market Triangle North. “We’re delighted to have the talent and commitment of the state Department of Commerce and regional economic develop-

ment community working with us to bring businesses to our parks and create jobs for the citizens of four counties,� said Danny W. Wright, KTREDC chairman. “Triangle North represents our best hope of turning the economic corner in our four counties and we are confident that, with this kind of talent, we’ll achieve success.� Triangle North is a network of tax-advantaged business parks in the northern part of the Research Triangle Region of North Carolina, home of The Research Triangle Park and one of the most economically competitive regions in the world. All Triangle North parks offer the highest level (Tier 1) of state financial incentives available in North Carolina, providing a low-cost point of entry for companies ready to locate or expand.

Edwards admits he fathered videographer’s child By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards finally admitted Thursday he fathered a child during an affair before his second White House bid, dropping long-standing denials just ahead of a book by a former campaign aide who initially took the fall. Edwards released a statement Edwards admitting paternity of the girl, Frances Quinn Hunter, who was born in 2008 to videographer Rielle Hunter as the result of an affair Edwards has already confessed to. “It was wrong for me to ever deny she was my daughter,” he said, adding he was providing financial support for the child and

mother. “I am Quinn’s father.” The admission comes ahead of the Feb. 2 release of a book by former Edwards aide Andrew Young that is expected to describe how Edwards worked to hide his paternity with Young’s help. Young initially claimed he was the child’s father shortly before the 2008 presidential primary contests began. Word that Young was naming Edwards as the father first came when details of his book proposal were reported by The New York Times in September. Edwards’ lawyer at the time declined to comment. The child was born Feb. 27, 2008, indicating that she was conceived in the middle of 2007, several months after Hunter stopped working for Edwards. John and Elizabeth Edwards renewed their wedding vows in July of 2007 to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. Hunter’s lawyer, Michael Critchley, said Edwards’ statement

amounted to a public acknowledgment of something that was known privately. He said Hunter did not have an immediate comment. It is not clear where she and the child are living. In an excerpt of an ABC News interview released Thursday, Young says that Edwards asked him to arrange a fake paternity test. “Get a doctor to fake the DNA results,” Young said Edwards told him. “And he asked me ... to steal a diaper from the baby so he could secretly do a DNA test to find out if this (was) indeed his child.” An Edwards spokeswoman declined to comment on the ABC interview. Elizabeth Edwards, whose cancer returned in an incurable form in March 2007, has stood by her husband despite the affair. She has said that it does not matter to her whether her husband fathered a child with Hunter, saying, “that would be a part of John’s life, but not a part of mine.”

Harrison Hickman, a longtime friend of John Edwards who worked as his political pollster, said Elizabeth Edwards was supportive of the decision of her husband to come forward. Since admitting the affair in August 2008, Edwards has largely gone into seclusion. He has acknowledged a federal investigation into his campaign finances while both Young and Hunter — with her child — have made appearances at a federal courthouse in Raleigh. In his statement, Edwards said, “I will do everything in my power to provide her (the child) with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.” “I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future,” the statement said. “To all

those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.” Edwards’ attorney, Wade Smith, said there would never be a logical explanation for why Edwards initially denied being the father. Edwards, a former U.S. senator representing North Carolina from 1998 until his vice presidential bid in 2004, acknowledged in May that federal investigators were looking into how he used campaign funds. Grand jury proceedings are secret, and the U.S. attorney’s office in Raleigh has declined to confirm or deny an investigation. Smith declined to comment Thursday about the probe. Edwards adamantly denied during an interview with ABC News last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, and he welcomed a paternity test. He said then that the affair had ended in 2006. That year, Edwards’ political action committee had paid Hunter’s video production firm $100,000 for work.

2009 sees increase in park visitors GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) — Visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park during its 75th anniversary year were up 5 percent over 2008 and were the most in nearly a decade. Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson said 9,491,436 people came into the 500,000-acre park in calendar year 2009 through its three main entrances and outlying areas. Ditmanson attributed much of the increase to the anniversary celebration, but

said the Smokies also benefited from a massive rock slide on Interstate 40 at the Tennessee-North Carolina state line. Many drivers used U.S. 441 through the park as an alternative route. The increase came despite record rainfall of 104.3 inches atop Mount LeConte and 20.43 inches more than normal onto Elkmont. April saw the largest increase of the year at 23 percent over the fourth month of 2008.

“It’s something that the average person is not going to see very often, if ever,” FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver said. The teen explained the ritual after being questioned by crew members of the flight, which had left LaGuardia Airport around 7:30 a.m. and was operated by Chautauqua Airlines, authorities said. Officials with the airline, however, said crew members “did not receive a clear response” when they talked with the teen, according to a statement issued by Republic Airways, which owns Chautauqua. “Therefore, in the interest of everyone’s safety, the crew decided to land in Philadelphia, where a more complete investigation and follow-up with

authorities would be possible,” the statement said. The flight left LaGuardia Airport around 7:30 a.m. The plane landed without incident and was met by police, bomb-sniffing dogs and officials from the FBI and Transportation Security Administration. Authorities said the plane was searched and passengers were questioned. The teen, who is from White Plains, N.Y., and was traveling with his 16-year-old sister, was very cooperative, Vanore said. “They were more alarmed than we were,” Vanore said. Klaver said the teen and his sister were never in custody, and were cleared to continue their travels.

The flight was carrying 15 passengers and three crew members; travelers were rebooked on other flights, US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant said. The Republic statement said the airline would use the event “to further strengthen our commitment to both security and customer service.”

DETROIT (AP) — The American Arbitration Association says 21 percent of GM and Chrysler dealers being shut down have appealed the automakers’ decision to close them. About 600 dealers out of the roughly 2,800 whose franchises were revoked last year have filed paperwork to go into binding arbitration over the fate of their businesses. General Motors and Chrysler say they need to

get rid of underperforming dealers so the remaining ones can make more money to invest in their businesses. The appeals come under a federal law passed in December that appointed the arbitration association to handle the claims. GM told about 2,000 dealers that their franchises would be phased out by October 2010. Chrysler shed 789 dealers in June.

RALEIGH — A former aide to former Gov. Mike Easley was indicted Thursday on 51 federal counts, including extortion, bribery and money laundering amid allegations he received personal gain while performing government actions. The indictment accuses Ruffin Poole of profiting financially from coastal developments that had been approved by state regulators. A “Wilmington financier” not identified by prosecutors sent $260,000 in payments as the return on financing from the Cannonsgate development in Carteret County and another coastal subdivision to a construction company owned by Poole’s family, according to the 64-page indictment. Poole was Easley’s former special counsel and aide while the two-term governor was in office. Easley is not accused of wrongdoing in the indictment, the first criminal charges filed in a wide-ranging probe by both state and federal investigators related to Easley, a Democrat who served eight years before leaving office in January 2009 due to term limits. The maximum punishments add to up hundreds of years in prison. Poole’s attorney didn’t immediately

return a phone call seeking comment. Federal marshals issued a warrant for his arrest late Thursday, according to documents. Federal grand jurors meeting in Raleigh for most of 2009 have called witnesses seeking testimony and documents about activities surrounding Easley, former first lady Mary Easley and his associates. In recent months, subpoenas indicated federal prosecutors were interested in coastal real estate developments assembled by two brothers with ties to the former governor and whether anyone made payoffs or gifts to state regulators. Easley and his wife bought a lot in Cannonsgate in 2005 and received a $137,000 discount, according to documents. The grand jury also called witnesses to testify about how Mary Easley got a job and a large salary increase at North Carolina State University. The state Highway Patrol also was served with federal subpoenas seeking information about private plane trips taken by Easley and his family. The State Board of Elections already has acted against Easley’s campaign committee, ordering it on Oct. 30 to pay a $100,000 penalty for failing to disclose dozens of flights taken by Easley while he was a candidate and piloted by a

political ally. A local prosecutor is now examining whether to file criminal charges against Easley or others related to the campaign finance violations. Donors to Easley’s campaign testified at the hearing, including Gary Allen, who developed Cannonsgate, and Lanny Wilson, a state Board of Transportation member who loaned money to a company run by Allen’s brother to complete the development sale. Wilson testified that Easley’s campaign urged them to write checks to the state Democratic Party as a way to help pay for expenses related to Easley’s gubernatorial bid. Funneling donations to one campaign committee so the money can go directly to another committee would be illegal. Poole declined to testify before the elections board, citing his right not to incriminate himself. Evidence in the hearing showed Poole was involved in fundraising for Easley’s campaign. Gary Allen testified that Wilson contacted Poole when Allen was having trouble securing permits for one of his developments. Gary Allen also said a $50,000 check he wrote to the state Democratic Party in advance of the 2004 election had no relation to the eventual approval of a permit at another development he was putting together.

Our Opinion

Don’t miss the Navy Sea Chanters If the Navy’s traveling in the South, you can bet they’ll be stopping in Henderson. We’re pleased again to be hosting in the Tri-County a concert by one of the U.S. Navy’s premiere bands. The Sea Chanters, the official chorus of the United States Navy, will be performing at the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center on Thursday, Feb. 18. We’re fortunate to have a venue that obviously pleases the Navy, and the people of the Tri-County have demonstrated to the Navy that you’ll be there to watch when they come to town to perform. The Country Current, the U.S. Navy’s country and bluegrass band, performed here in September 2008. Previously, the college hosted the Commodores, the Navy’s official jazz ensemble, and the elite Concert Band, the Navy’s top group of musicians. Each of those three previous concerts has packed the Civic Center, and each time the Navy’s groups have delivered with entertaining, high-caliber shows. When the call came offering the opportunity to host the Sea Chanters, The Daily Dispatch couldn’t help but say yes. We’re especially appreciative of the concert co-hosts, Vance-Granville Community College, for joining us in this endeavor. Already the orders for tickets are pouring in. The concert is free — your tax dollars and ours already paid the bill — but the Navy asks that we distribute tickets to those who wish to attend to allow concert-goers a chance to “reserve” a spot in the audience. Tickets are available by writing to us here at the Dispatch. We only ask that you tell us how many tickets you want — maximum of six, please — and send us a self-addressed stamped envelope to mail your tickets to you. A handy form is available in the Dispatch throughout the week. Considered by critics as one of the nation’s preeminent professional choral ensembles, the Sea Chanters chorus is the group that performed at the inauguration of President Obama. This chorus is the group that sang at the memorial service for former President Ford. They were there when the nation remembered the astronauts of the space shuttle Columbia. They were the ones singing at the Presidential wreath-laying ceremony at the site of the United Airlines Flight 93 crash in Pennsylvania. Perhaps you recall their memorable performance of “Amazing Grace” to an international television audience at the National Day of Prayer in Washington’s National Cathedral after 9/11. They bring a group of 20 performers, accompanied by piano, bass and drums. Their music varies from traditional choral music, including the sea chantey, to Broadway musicals. We have a rich history of cultural entertainment in our community, thanks in part to groups like the Henderson Community Concert Association, the Henderson Rec Players and so many of our churches. We’re proud to be a part of that cultural enrichment by sponsoring this concert with VGCC, and we’re especially proud to show our respect to the men and women of our Armed Forces — not just the Navy, but all of them — by hosting this patriotic event. Want more details? Visit our Web site and click on Extras! at the top of the page. Plan to join us on Feb. 18 and get ready to be entertained.

For the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Tuesday night’s senatorial election results could be defined as the demise of a Democrat dynasty. And for the Republican Party, Scott Brown — its pickup-truckdriving, snow-stomping, underdog candidate turned champ — could be defined as a presentday tortoise whose diligence and campaign-savvy triumphed over the hare. Scott Brown was indeed a tortoise in this historic race on his way to returning this Massachusetts’ U.S. Senate seat to Republican hands for the first time since 1972. Brown’s longshot victory capped a candidacy of creeping up polls, in which he originally lagged by doubledigits behind state Attorney General Martha Coakley. Yet with the finish line crossed, one questions how the tortoise touts the trophy while the hare hops home in defeat? Or, perhaps politically put: How did arguably one of the most liberal states in the Union elect a Republican senator? “I’m Scott Brown. I’m from Wrentham. And I drive a truck.” Brown wasn’t your typical politician. The Massachusetts state senator’s campaign, commercialized behind the wheel of his 2005 GMC Canyon, trafficked in the attention of voters — a valuable commodity. But his pickup wasn’t preferred by every observer, particularly President Obama, who made wisecracks about Brown’s campaign trips in the truck during a Coakley rally last Sunday in Boston.

“It might not take you where you want to go,” Obama said of Brown’s ride. “Maybe it will,” responded Massachusetts. Brown’s populist appeal could be responsible for the monumental win. Huffington Post political analyst Jennifer Donahue credits Brown for selling Gina himself as Eaves “the people’s Daily Dispatch senator,” Columnist a title long bestowed on the seat’s prior holder, Ted Kennedy. If so, perhaps Brown’s defining moment as “the people’s senator” occurred during a much-discussed debate Sunday, moderated by CNN’s David Gergen. When asked if he was willing to sit in Kennedy’s seat and block health care reform, Brown replied: “With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedys’ seat, and it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.” Gaining “the people’s seat” demonstrates not only an appeal to his Massachusetts constituents, it heralds an attack on the Democratic Party and its policies — namely health care reform. “I believe that all Americans deserve health care coverage, but I am opposed to the health care legislation that is under consideration in Congress and

will vote against it,” states Brown on his official campaign Web site. Citing concerns with the legislation, such as raising taxes, increased government spending and lower quality of care, Brown’s campaign further noted that he supports Massachusetts’ own revolutionary 2006 health care law, which he says “was successful in expanding coverage,” while acknowledging the state “must now turn it’s attention to controlling costs.” With Brown’s win, the Republicans regained the power of filibuster, knocking out a Democrat supermajority in the Senate. That might send Obama’s health care legislation back to the drawing board again — as well as many other things on the president’s legislative wish list. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, President Obama acknowledged the implications of Brown’s victory. “Here’s one thing I know and I just want to make sure that this is off the table: The Senate certainly shouldn’t try to jam anything through until Scott Brown is seated,” Obama said. “People in Massachusetts spoke. He’s got to be part of that process.” And a part of that process he will be — due to the astounding support of Massachusetts’ unaffiliated voters. Brown outpolled Coakley among the state’s large number of independent voters by a margin of 73 to 25 percent, according to a Rasmussen poll. From the Senate floor Wednesday, former Republican presidential contender, Arizona

Sen. John McCain, called the Massachusetts election, “a shot fired around this nation.” Coakley, who has received criticism for her lackluster campaign, described herself as “heartbroken” to a crowd of supporters following her loss to Brown Tuesday night. “We never lost our focus or determination,” said Coakley. Yet a lack of determination may be exactly what accounts for the Democrat’s loss. The Republican’s victory began as a seemingly unwinnable race, with Coakley considered to be just strides from the finish line before Brown had budged from the start. Perhaps it was Brown’s passion for the race, that determination that despite all odds he would push to prevail, that made him the people’s champion. Perhaps people want to feel that they, and their causes, are worth fighting for. And Scott Brown, whose slow strides captivated a liberal state’s attention, did just that — plugging away and crossing the finish line first, a Republican winning in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. But, perhaps most important, Brown’s win sends a message that even one of the most liberal states in the Union cares not for the direction in which Democrats are leading the nation. Thus Brown’s election has both renewed Republican strength, and stripped the Democrats of their supermajority, potentially derailing much of the ruling party’s agenda.

Dems should abandon sinking ship To the extent U.S. Senators from Massachusetts have ever played much of a role in North Carolina politics, it’s been as useful foils for Republicans. Ted Kennedy certainly showed up in more than his share of fundraising mailings by Jesse Helms and other conservative candidates. John Kerry picked John Edwards as his running mate in 2004 in an attempt to compete for Carolinian and Southern votes, a tactic that ended embarrassingly for all concerned. The GOP loved it. But state Sen. Scott Brown’s improbable, spectacular election Tuesday night to fill out the remainder of the late Sen. Kennedy’s term has ripple effects that will reach all the way to North Carolina. The Brown victory cannot credibly be spun as a contest settled by local issues or personalities. Everyone knows that the Senate race between Brown and Democrat Martha Coakley was a referendum on President Obama’s agenda for health care reform and other issues. The president certainly recognized it. That’s why he went to Massachusetts over the weekend to campaign against Brown and to link his political fate to that of Coakley. By giving Brown the thumbs-up, voters in one of America’s most liberal states

gave ObamaCare the thumbsdown. Congressional leaders and the president have vowed to pass the plan, anyway. It is the act of fanatics determined to ride a sinking ship to the bottom of John the ocean. Hood Now we John Locke shall see Foundation how many rankand-file Democrats are as willing to become martyrs to the cause of government-run health care as their leaders are. Here in North Carolina, two Democrats in swing House seats, Larry Kissell of the 8th District and Health Shuler of the 11th, abandoned the doomed vessel months ago, along with Mike McIntyre of the more Democratic-leaning 7th. Now attention will turn to the future votes to be cast by Reps. Bob Etheridge and Brad Miller, two incumbents who represent Democraticleaning districts that, according to historical voting patterns, will only flip Republican under extraordinary circumstances.

The election of a Republican senator in Massachusetts qualifies as extraordinary circumstances. As for freshman U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, she won’t stand for reelection until 2014. A vote for the final version of ObamaCare may not end her political career. But it will mark Hagan as a Democrat of the left, not the center. The ideologues who still cling to ObamaCare insist that its demise will mean an end to health care reform. Their claim is idiotic. While significant disagreements persist about the merits of government-run insurance, the application of market principles to health care delivery, and the extent to which health plans should price risk accurately or simply redistribute income, there remain some areas of broad agreement that could serve as common ground for a truly bipartisan reform initiative. For example, most health policy analysts across the political spectrum recognize that the current system does not give patients the information, tools, and incentives they need to be more active participants in medical decisions. Reforming state and federal laws to encourage the publication of medical prices, the coordination of care, and the widespread adoption of

flexible spending and health savings accounts would allow providers, health plans, and patients to experiment with new ways to improve both the quality and efficiency of medical care without imposing new taxes or mandates, or forcing anyone out of current health care relationships they like. Most analysts also recognize that some state laws and regulations needlessly prevent patients from using the medical care they would freely choose, such as natural childbirth or low-cost clinics. Let’s junk these rules. Most importantly, most analysts realize that our current tax code is unfair to lower-income workers by offering full income- and payroll-tax exclusions for health insurance obtained at the workplace but not for those who buy health plans as individuals. Equalizing the tax treatment of all healthfinancing arrangements is good tax policy as well as good health care policy. Nervous North Carolina Democrats don’t need to abandon health care reform to save themselves from Martha Coakley’s fate. They just have to abandon the sinking ship.

he left it to bring you solace, and I hope that it serves its purpose. I love you, too. DEAR ABBY: I have a great job working with people I enjoy, and probably the coolest boss in the world. There is just one little problem. He keeps asking me to go out with his daughter. She is a wonderful person, smart and absolutely beautiful — but she is also recently divorced. I’m afraid I would just be the “in-between” guy for her -- a stepping-stone to her recovery. In other words, whatever happens would be at my expense. How can I politely tell my boss that I cannot date his daughter? — REALIST IN UTAH DEAR REALIST: Tell him you are flattered, that you think his daughter is smart and absolutely beautiful and a wonderful person. Then tell him you know how painful a divorce can be and you would prefer to wait until she is emotionally back on her feet and has gotten her bearings before inviting her out. Do not completely reject the idea because in six months or a year, if she is still available, you may change your mind. DEAR ABBY: I’m having a dispute with my husband. He thinks that you screw in a lightbulb clockwise. I disagree. I say counter-clockwise. Which of us is correct? — ERIKA IN PELHAM, ALA. DEAR ERIKA: He is. You screw in a lightbulb by turning it to the right, the same way you tighten the lid on a jar — which is clockwise.

You referred me to the National Organization of Parents of Murdered Children, which provides mutual support to persons who have survived the violent death of someone close (www.pomc. org). I have a little “upper” for you now. We all know about the letters you have printed about Pennies from Heaven, but I don’t know if there ever has been one like this. My dad always wore a gold cross around his Dear neck.

So we called everywhere we could think of to locate it and ended up thinking that somewhere along the way from his being killed, taken to the ER, to autopsy, to the funeral home, it had been lost forever. A few days before Christmas, we found it! It was in a box of pennies my dad had collected. He must have taken it off before he left that night because he had been seen in it earlier that day. We all believe in miracles, and this is my very own Christmas miracle. Thank you, Abby, for everything you do for so many of us who are suffering.

News Briefs Supreme Court ruling will affect N.C. elections RALEIGH (AP) — A U.S. Supreme Court ruling giving business and unions more ability to influence federal elections also stands to increase their sway in North Carolina for state and legislative elections. The nation’s highest court ruled Thursday in a split decision corporations and unions can’t be barred from using money from their coffers to produce and run their own campaign ads. North Carolina has a similar law that State Board of Elections executive director Gary Bartlett said now appears unenforceable. Bartlett said the decision likely means more business and union groups will use their own money to support or oppose candidates. Damon Circosta with the North Carolina Center for Voter Education said he hopes the ruling will build interest in the Legislature for expanding publicly financed campaigns.

$20 million bail set for California kidnap suspect PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A judge has set bail at $20 million for a woman accused of kidnapping and raping Jaycee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years. In setting the high bail amount, El Dorado Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister said Thursday he considered Nancy Garrido to be a danger to the community and a flight risk.

Attorney Alexander Calfo says asking a minor to purchase drugs is a felony. District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says she had not seen the lawsuit, so she could not comment.

Garrido has pleaded not guilty in the 1991 kidnapping and sexual assault. Her husband, Phillip Garrido, also has pleaded not guilty. His bail was set at $30 million in September. Also Thursday, Phimister appointed a new lawyer for Nancy Garrido and said a weeks-long dispute over her representation had sidetracked the case and could adversely affect the defendant’s rights. The next hearing is scheduled for March 25.

NASA: No word from Phoenix Mars lander

L.A. school district sued over telling boy to buy drugs LOS ANGELES (AP) — The family of a 12-year-old boy is suing the Los Angeles school district, claiming that three administrators asked the student to take part in a drug sting operation. According to the lawsuit filed Thursday, the educators gave the boy cash and told him to buy drugs from a suspected drug dealer, even though the plan was not sanctioned by police. The lawsuit says the sting was enacted after the boy told Porter Middle School administrators that a 14-year-old was selling marijuana on campus. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

PASADENA, California (AP) — NASA says there’s no word from the Phoenix lander that is presumed to be frozen near the Martian north pole. The space agency said Thursday the Mars Odyssey spacecraft passed over the Phoenix landing site 30 times during the last three days and did not hear anything. Scientists have said it is highly unlikely that Phoenix survived the Martian winter. It landed on Mars in May 2008 and operated for five months. NASA will listen for Phoenix again next month.

Back in purple ECU alum McNeill named head coach By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — East Carolina has turned to former Texas Tech defensive coordinator, and Pirates alum, Ruffin McNeill to replace Skip Holtz. The school announced the move Thursday after members of the board of trustees approved McNeill’s hiring and an outline of a contract. The contract won’t be finalized until a regular meeting of the board next month. East Carolina will hold a news conference in Greenville on Friday morning with McNeill, who spent 10 seasons at Texas Tech as an assistant, McNeill then served as interim coach when Mike Leach was suspended and later fired. He coached Texas Tech to a win against Michigan State in the Alamo Bowl, but left the program after Tommy Tuberville was hired as coach. McNeill, who was a candidate to become Leach’s permanent successor, played defensive back for the Pirates from 1976-79. He inherits a program coming off four straight bowl appearances and consecutive Conference USA championships under Holtz, who left last week to take over at South Florida. Athletic director Terry Holland had said he preferred to hire someone with head-coaching experience instead of an assistant coach. One of his top targets was Middle Tennessee’s Rick Stockstill, who announced earlier this week he was withdrawing his name from consideration due to the short time before national signing day next month. “Coach McNeill’s interview revealed his strong commitment to doing things the right way and his love of Please see McNEILL, page 3B

Viking swimmers get win over Southern Boys’ relay teams for both schools make automatic regional cuts By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Sports Writer

The Northern and Southern Vance swim teams competed in their last regular season meet Thursday at Aycock Recreational Center. Northern picked up a sweep, winning 99-51 in the boys’ competition and 100-64 in the girls’ meet. The Vikings honored four seniors: Adam and Aaron Daeke, Alexandra Hughes and manager Sterling Kirby. The Raiders paid tribute to six seniors: Bethanie Mahl, Brandi Ayscue, Julia Sumner, Tony Tart, Cameron Driver and Caleb Garrett. Northern’s meet was highlighted by the boys 200 and 400 free relay teams’ automatic regional cut times. Adam and

Aaron Daeke make up half of both of those relay teams. “They are the heart and soul of my guy’s team,” Northern coach Natasha Rubin said of her seniors. “When they’re having fun, the rest of the guys follow their lead and have a good time. They step up and race when the time counts.” Josh McLawhorn and David Porter are the other half of the 200 free team and McLawhorn and Lee Root make up the rest of the 400 free team. “Ultimately, that’s our goal to get to regionals so we can go to states. So that was exciting to be able to get those times,” said Rubin. The Northern boys’ and girls’ squads took wins in every relay event but the 400 free. Please see SWIMMING, page 3B

Carolina goalie Cam Ward keeps Atlanta’s Jim Slater from scoring in the third period of Thursday’s game in Atlanta.

ATLANTA — It didn’t take Eric Staal long to show how well he can lead the Carolina Hurricanes. Staal scored a season-high three goals in his first game since becoming Carolina’s captain and the Hurricanes beat the Atlanta Thrashers 5-2 on Thursday night for a rare road victory. “It was kind of neat to start off this way,” Staal said. The Hurricanes were last in the NHL with 35 points and had lost three straight when Staal took over as captain Wednesday for Rod Brind’Amour. “It’s a challenge,” said Staal of his new role. “We’ve had great leadership here for a long time. I’m excited for the opportunity to learn from a great captain who won us a Stanley Cup.” Brind’Amour led the team to its only Stanley Cup in 2006. Cam Ward stopped 32 shots to tie Arturs Irbe’s franchise record with 130 career wins. “I hope to keep adding onto

NFL Tolbert named new Panthers WR coach CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have hired Tyke Tolbert as receivers coach. The move on Thursday comes three days after longtime assistant Richard Williamson announced his retirement from that position. Tolbert had been in the same job with the Buffalo Bills for the past six seasons. The former LSU receiver also spent a year as receivers coach for the Arizona Cardinals. There is still one opening on coach John Fox’s staff. Special teams coach Danny Crossman hasn’t been replaced after being fired earlier this month.

Rex Ryan sends game ball to Marty Schottenheimer FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Jets coach Rex Ryan sent a game ball to Marty Schottenheimer after last weekend’s playoff upset of the San Diego Chargers, the team that fired the father of New York’s offensive coordinator following a 14-2 regular season. Brian Schottenheimer said he was touched when he learned of his boss’ gesture Tuesday — and joked that it didn’t even occur to him to do it. Marty Schottenheimer was fired in February 2007 after the Chargers lost their first playoff game despite having the NFL’s best record that season. He had 35 wins and two AFC West titles in his last three seasons in San Diego, where his son was quarterbacks coach from 2002-05. “It felt nice to pick up the phone after the game and talk to my father,” Brian Schottenheimer said Thursday.

LeBron scores 37 in Cavs’ win over Lakers By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers haven’t lost their holiday spirit. Cleveland showed its Christmas Day win over the Los Angeles Lakers was no gift as LeBron James scored 37 points, including 12 straight down the stretch, and the Cavs, playing their first game without injured Mo Williams, beat Kobe Bryant and the NBA champions 93-87 on Thursday night. J.J. Hickson grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds and Anderson Varejao made three free throws in the final 20 seconds as Cleveland swept the season series between the league’s top two teams. That could give the Cavs home-court advantage if they meet the Lakers in June’s NBA finals. A lot can happen between now and then, but the win gave Cleveland confidence it might be able to survive despite losing Williams, their All-Star point guard who will miss at least one month with a shoulder sprain. Williams scored a team-high 28 in Cleveland’s Dec. 25 win at Staples Center. Bryant finished with 31 points but was only 4-of-15 in the second half as the Lakers lost the opener of an eight-game road trip. Pau Gasol scored 13 for Los Angeles. Bryant surpassed 25,000 career points in the first half, but he was unable to match James in the fourth quarter as both teams turned to their superstars. With the score tied 80-

Cleveland’s LeBron James puts pressure on Los Angeles guard Kobe Bryant in the first quarter of Thursday’s game in Cleveland. all, James hit a 3-pointer from the left side, and after a miss by Bryant, the reigning MVP dropped another jumper to put Cleveland ahead by five. James then hit another shot to make it 87-80 with 2:48 left and the Cavs looked to be in control. But Ron Artest hit a big 3 for the Lakers and Bryant made two free throws and a quick jumper to tie it 87-87 with 1:32 remaining. James then blasted down the left side for a layup with 40.5 seconds to go, prompting chants of “M-V-P” from the raucous Quicken Loans crowd. After Gasol missed two free throws that would have tied it, the Cavs called a timeout and before play resumed, James

was caught by cameras rapping to Eminem’s song “Forever” before the ball was inbounded. James then split a pair of free throws, but Varejao grabbed the rebound on the miss and was fouled by Artest. Varejao, a 66 percent shooter from the line, made both attempts for a 92-87 Cavs lead with 20.7 seconds left. Bryant misfired on an off-balance 3-point attempt and James saved the long rebound, flying into Cleveland’s bench to make the save. As Varejao went to the line again with 4.1 seconds left, James popped his maroon Cavs jersey, making sure everyone knew who came out on top. James wanted this win badly. While trying to run down a loose ball in the

third quarter with the Cavs down two, he leaped over the head of Lakers assistant coach Frank Hamblen and hurdled two rows of chairs before landing in the lap of an unsuspecting female Cavs fan, whom he hugged before returning to the floor. Moments later, Cleveland took its first lead when Anthony Parker drilled a 3-pointer from the right corner with 4:42 left in the quarter. James and Bryant both hit jumpers in the final 1:33 of the quarter, which ended with Bryant and Gasol exchanging in a somewhat heated conversation as they returned to the bench. Bryant would stay seated for the first 6:37 of the fourth, and when he returned the Lakers trailed 83-80. Bryant went just 11 of 25 from the floor, not much of an improvement from his 11 of 33 effort against Cleveland last month. Delonte West, who started in place of Williams, spent most of the fourth guarding Bryant. Shaquille O’Neal scored 13 and Hickson, who had just two points in the first meeting with L.A., had 11 and was the difference inside. While media members, fans and even the league have pushed to portray the Cavaliers and Lakers as a budding rivalry, Bryant isn’t buying it — not yet anyway. “No,” he said coldly when asked if the team’s were adversaries before the game. “Not at all.” He may now be warming up to the idea.

Phillips to remain Cowboys coach next two years By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

IRVING, Texas — Wade Phillips is sticking around as coach of the Dallas Cowboys for two more years. Dallas won the NFC East for the second time in Phillips’ three seasons. The team also won its first playoff game since 1996 and the first in Phillips’ head coaching career. The Cowboys are 34-17 over his three seasons in charge. Only three NFL teams have won more games in that span. “We want to build on the foundation we have put in place over the last three years,” team owner Jerry Jones said Thursday, when announcing Phillips’ new two-year deal. “I want to take advantage of the continuity.” Jones could have picked up an option for 2010 that was part of the three-year deal Phillips signed when he replaced Bill Parcells following the 2006 season. There also was speculation Phillips would get another three-year deal, but Jones said he opted instead to only go through 2011 because “two years in the NFL is an eternity.” “There’s no comfort zone about it,” Jones said. “It addresses the urgency of where we want to go from here.” Jones would not give any

Not one penny,” Jones said. “Is he being underpaid? Probably, for what I think he is. The bottom line is we have something that works. He has great incentive to doing what he wants to do anyway.” Phillips had been among the league’s lowest-paid head coaches at around $3 million per season. This past year, he also took on the role of defensive coordinator, and Jones called him “the MVP of the defense.” “The money is not the most important thing , I can tell you that,” Phillips said. He also said he was fine

with the length of the deal, which does not include an option for 2012. “It doesn’t matter if it’s one year or 10 years,” he said. “With this team right now, I feel very comfortable. I think we can go further and we will go further.” The Cowboys have

gone a franchise-worst 14 seasons without winning or reaching a Super Bowl. Next season, the Super Bowl will be at Cowboys Stadium, and Jones has long wanted to become the first host team to play in the big game. “I feel like we’re going to be knocking on the door,” he said. Then a smiling Phillips jumped in with a line made famous by his dad, Bum Phillips, when he coached the Houston Oilers: “We’re going to kick that SOB in, too.” Jones added that he expects to bring back the entire coaching staff, including three assistants whose contracts expire after this season. Among them is Phillips’ son, Wes, who is in charge of offensive quality control. “That’s what Wade wanted and that’s what we’ll do,” Jones said.

Phillies agree to deals with Blanton, Victorino By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Joe Blanton got his reward for consistency and durability. Blanton and the Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract that avoided a salary arbitration hearing next month. The 29-yearold right-hander was 12-8 with a 4.05 ERA last year. Later Thursday, a person familiar with negotiations said the Phillies and All-Star center fielder Shane Victorino agreed to a $22 million, threeyear contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced. Catcher Carlos Ruiz is the only remaining Phil-

lies player in arbitration. Victorino hit .292 with 39 doubles, 13 triples, 10 homers, 62 RBIs and 25 stolen bases for the NL champions last season. He won his second consecutive Gold Glove. “They came to me with the prospect of going long term, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled,” Blanton said at a news conference. “I couldn’t be happier to have this opportunity to stay in the Phillies’ organization. I’ve enjoyed my time here and I feel like the organization just keeps getting better and better every year.” After making $5,475,000 last year, Blanton asked for $10.25 million in arbitration and was offered $7.5 million. He already had agreed to

a new deal before those numbers were submitted. Victorino had sought $5.8 million in arbitration. The Phillies offered $4.75 million. “Joe has been absolutely outstanding since he’s been with us,” general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. “He’s probably been one of the most consistent pitchers in baseball. His consistency and what he brings to the table for us as a person, we’re very pleased to basically buy out two years of free agency and have Joe for the foreseeable future.” Blanton has pitched more than 1,000 innings over the last five years. He joined the Phillies in a midseason trade in 2008 and helped them win the second World Series title

in franchise history. Blanton didn’t get a decision in two postseason starts and two relief appearances last fall when the Phillies lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series. He didn’t balk at going to the bullpen, despite being one of Philadelphia’s most reliable starters during the regular season. “Winning is what I’m about. That’s the big thing,” Blanton said. Blanton won at least 12 games in each of his first three seasons with Oakland. He is 63-54 with a 4.21 ERA in his career. The Phillies now have four starters — Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, J.A. Happ and Blanton — under contract through 2012.

Red Raiders. A native of Lumberton, N.C., McNeill also spent three seasons at Appalachian State, then returned to his alma

mater to coach the defensive line in 1992 before going back to the Mountaineers and serving as defensive coordinator from 1993-96.

He made some mistakes tonight that we’ve been working on... and he was fortunate enough to survive, but he also weathered some storms and didn’t give up,” Frampton said. “He’s been a very pleasant surprise this year.” KVA’s Brandon Dickerson and Daniel Currin both won their matches against AHA at the 135 and 140 pound classes, respectively. Dickerson pinned his opponent with a little more than 30 seconds to go in the first, and Currin got the pin with 19 seconds left in the opening period. KVA’s Alex Wegener took AHA’s Noah Madrick into the second period after narrowly avoiding a pin in the first, but his shoulders were flattened in the second.

CANES, from page 1B Jokinen was awarded his goal after an officials’ review showed the puck crossed the line before it was kicked out of the net by Ron Hainsey. The goals by Jokinen and Staal in the first 3 minutes of the second period left the Hurricanes 3 for 3 on the power play. Staal’s third goal came with 44 seconds remaining in the third period after the Thrashers pulled goalie Ondrej Pavelec, who stopped 16 shots. “Our goaltender was good, our special teams were real good and that’s the difference in the game,” Carolina coach

Paul Maurice said. “Good leadership and good goaltending tonight.” Staal will represent Canada in the Olympics. General manager Jim Rutherford said Wednesday that Staal “is the player around whom the team will be structured.” Added Ward after the game: “It feels good. Staal was a good choice.” The 39-year-old Brind’Amour, who had been the captain since 2005, was demoted to alternate captain. Rich Peverley scored an unassisted goal for Atlanta 13:30 into the second period. Colby

Armstrong added a tip-in with 8:12 remaining in the third period. The Thrashers were stopped in each of their four chances with a man advantage in the third period, leaving them 0 for 6 for the game. Carolina scored three goals on four power plays. “On special teams, I don’t want to use the word horrific, but that’s the first thing that comes to my mind,” Thrashers coach John Anderson said. “Our power play isn’t generating a lot.” Ilya Kovalchuk, who was stopped on six shots,

said the Thrashers “had a lot of chances tonight, but couldn’t score. ... We have to work harder on the power play and get the puck to the net.” Anderson said he may have to “dumb it down a bit” on power plays to “put some grit in front of the net and pound away.” The Thrashers began the day only one point out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. “This was a huge game for us,” Kovalchuk said. “But we have a lot of games ahead of us and if we play with the right intensity, hopefully things will go out way.”

out and get best times,” said Rubin. “We’ve had a really great season. The kids have stuck together. They’ve really bonded and it’s been a fun team to coach.” Southern’s highlight swims of the evening came in the 400 free relays, where both the boys and girls were victorious. The Raider boys’ 400 free relay team also made time for an automatic regional bid. “That’s been an event our kids have loved and

most of them are seniors,” said Raiders coach Wendi Leas. “Six out of the eight kids on those two relays are seniors. It’s just been our event over the past couple of years.” Mahl (50 free, 100 free), Ayscue (500 free), Garrett (200 free), and Driver (200 IM, 100 fly) made up the Raider individual winners. Tart picked up a regional consideration time in the 50 free. “I thought we raced well, we swam well against Northern,” said coach

Dinara Safina returns to Britain’s Elena Baltacha on her way to winning their women’s singles third round match at the Australian Open Friday.

Safina advances, Jankovic out of Australian Open By JOHN PYE AP Sports Writer

MELBOURNE, Australia — Dinara Safina advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open on Friday, winning her first match on the major’s marquee court since her lopsided loss to Serena Williams in last year’s final. Jelena Jankovic just keeps running into trouble at the Grand Slams. Second-seeded Safina beat Britain’s Elena Baltacha 6-1, 6-2 in her return to Rod Laver Arena and eighth-seeded Jankovic was upset by No. 31 Alona Bondarenko, falling 6-2, 6-3 for her first loss in 10 meetings with the Ukraine player. Both Safina and Jankovic have held the No. 1 ranking, but neither has won a Grand Slam singles title. Only Safina, who has been a runnerup three times, can make that breakthrough here. Jankovic made 40 unforced errors against 13 winners. She hasn’t gone beyond the fourth round at any of the majors since she lost the 2008 U.S. Open final — her only championship match at a major. She lost the No. 1 ranking after her fourthround exit here last year. Two other former No. 1-ranked players, both from Belgium and both on the comeback from retirement, were in action later Friday. Justine Henin played Alisa Kleybonova immediately after Jankovic on Hisense Arena and U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters had a night match. Men’s defending champion Rafael Nadal was playing Philipp Kohlschreiber in a night match at Rod Laver. Roger Federer, the king of tennis, met Britain’s Prince William on the same court the previous evening. After Federer dispatched Victor Hanescu 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in 99 minutes Thursday, on-court interviewer Jim Courier invited the top-ranked Swiss star to acknowledge the rare visit to Melbourne by a high-ranking British royal. “Your Royal Highness, welcome to the world of tennis,” Federer said. “Thanks for coming.” Prince William duly blushed and waved, and the pair shook hands.

Federer is no stranger to royalty, having collected the Wimbledon trophy six times on London’s grass courts among his record 15 Grand Slam titles. But this was his first meeting with William, second in line to the British throne. “Chitchat? no,” Federer said. “English breakfast tea? No, not yet.” “Of course, where he comes from, you know, he knows tennis. And Wimbledon’s big,” Federer added. “So for me it was very a big honor that he came to watch me. He said he was happy that I played a little bit longer because the match could have ended even shorter.” Prince William also met women’s champion Serena Williams, who defeated Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-1 to set up a thirdround match against Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro. Navarro ousted Venus Williams in the second round last year. Venus has already improved on that, defeating Sybille Bammer 6-2, 7-5. “I feel if I play well, I can beat anybody,” said Serena, who is planning some research on Suarez Navarro. “I know she took out Venus around this time last year, if I’m not mistaken. “I would hate to see it become a habit for her, taking out a sister this time every year. So I have to be ready. Yeah, definitely will talk to (Venus) and see what goes next.” U.S. Open finalist Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark was among the other women advancing. She’ll meet No. 29 Shahar Peer of Israel in the next round. Ana Ivanovic, the 2008 Australian Open finalist and French Open champion, lost to Argentina’s Gisela Dulko. Most of the leading men in the top half the draw progressed in straight sets. Novak Djokovic, the 2008 champion, had a slow start in his 3-6, 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 win over Marco Chiudinelli of Switzerland. No. 9 Fernando Verdasco, a semifinalist last year, advanced 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 over Ivan Sergeyev of Ukraine, and 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had a 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 win over American Taylor Dent.

SWIMMING, from page 1B McLawhorn (50 free), Adam Daeke (100 free), D.J. Casto (200 free), Andy Tillotson (100 backstroke), and Nick Sharpe (100 breaststroke) notched wins for the Viking boys. Hughes (100 fly, 100 backstroke), Abby Ellington (200 free) and Katie Childers (200 IM, 100 breaststroke) rounded out the winners on the girls’ side for Northern. Rubin’s only four-year participant is her manager, Kirby. “She’s stuck with me

for four years. She’s come a long way. She’s been a great manager and the team looks to her for leadership even though she’s out of the pool,” Rubin said. Both Northern and Southern will compete in the Carolina 3A Conference Tournament in Cary Tuesday where powerhouses Chapel Hill and Cardinal Gibbons are expected to reign supreme. “I’m just looking for them to go out there and swim their hearts

Chris Leas. “We knew going in, having a smaller team, that it would be very difficult to win the head-tohead matchup because of depth.” Mahl was Southern’s only four-year swimmer, while Ayscue and Sumner have been participants for three years. “The girls are a closeknit group and it’s because of the leadership we have with those three seniors,” said Wendi Leas. On the boys side, Driver and Garrett are three-year

swimmers, while Tart was a new addition this season. “I’ve grown really close to them,” Chris Leas said. “I live vicariously through my swimmers. They’re like little brothers to me. We’ve got a real close relationship.” Leas said he is planning on resting his swimmers ahead of Tuesday’s conference meet in preparation for February’s regionals in Goldsboro.

Defending champion Tar Heels struggling for wins By AARON BEARD AP Basketball Writer

CHAPEL HILL — The front line looked imposing. The veteran leadership was there. And with an infusion of young talent, North Carolina entered the season looking ready to defend its national championship. More than halfway through the season, that squad is nowhere to be seen. The Tar Heels (12-7, 1-3 Atlantic coast Conference) have lost three straight games for the first time under Hall of Fame coach Roy Williams and matched their loss total of the previous two seasons combined. Picked as cofavorites in the league along with rival Duke, the Tar Heels are sitting near the bottom of the standings and have the look of a team that would just settle for a win right now. The frustration is evident, from the players’ stunned looks during consecutive home losses to Georgia Tech and Wake Forest to Williams’ comments after each game. “I don’t give a darn about what’s going on,”

North Carolina head coach Roy Williams put his head down as this team loses to Wake Forest 82-69 during the second half Wednesday in Chapel Hill. Williams said after Wednesday’s 82-69 loss to the Demon Deacons. “I’m going to coach my rear end off tomorrow. It’s up to them to come along with me, and that’s the way it is. “I’m going to ask them, ’Do you want to keep playing?’ If they don’t want to, we can figure out something for them to do. But we’re going to keep playing.” There is no quick, easy explanation for why the Tar Heels are struggling like this. Some of the young players pressed into key roles have struggled with consistency and

intensity, while others haven’t developed at all. The returnees from the team that romped its way through last season’s NCAA tournament haven’t been able to make up for those struggles, either. Then there are the injuries, which have only exacerbated those troubles. Fifth-year senior Marcus Ginyard and junior Will Graves have missed recent games with sprained ankles, sophomore big man Ed Davis sat out the Wake Forest loss with his own ankle injury and 7-foot reserve Tyler Zeller could miss six weeks with a stress fracture in his

when it’s normal for other programs.” Perhaps some of these struggles should have been expected considering what the Tar Heels lost from the team that hoisted the trophy in Detroit. Four-year star Tyler Hansbrough graduated as the storied program’s career scoring and rebounding leader, while juniors Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington each jumped to the NBA. In addition, perimeter scoring threat Danny Green and valuable reserve Bobby Frasor also graduated. Still, North Carolina’s cupboard didn’t look as bare as it did when it lost the top seven scorers from its 2005 title winner. Starting forward Deon Thompson was back along with Ginyard, who missed most of last season but started every game in the Final Four run of 2008. In addition, Davis returned despite being a possible NBA lottery pick along with Zeller to give the Tar Heels one of the nation’s top frontcourts. All that was needed was for sophomore Larry Drew II to grow into the point guard role run so per-

right foot. Along the way, North Carolina has lost to the elite (Kentucky, Texas) and the unranked (College of Charleston). The Tar Heels even suffered their worst loss under Williams (19 points at Clemson), then fell behind by 20 in the first half against the Yellow Jackets days later. “It’s very frustrating losing games that we shouldn’t lose,” freshman Travis Wear said. “It’s kind of mind-boggling at this point that you’ve lost three (ACC) games and you’re North Carolina.” It’s still early and the Tar Heels have time to regroup, but the storied program ranked sixth in the preseason could be at risk of missing the NCAAs completely if things don’t change soon. “It’s what young teams tend to go through, but it’s really unusual for any North Carolina team,” said Jay Bilas, a college basketball analyst for ESPN and a former Duke player. “In a way, it’s kind of a reminder of the extraordinary success they’ve had there. North Carolina is not going to go through this very often

fectly by Lawson, and for guys such as top recruit John Henson or freshman guard Dexter Strickland to develop into reliable contributors. Drew has been serviceable so far, but Henson has struggled with seven points in the past five games while the other rookies have had their ups and downs. Williams has said his team has to play smarter to win in the ACC. Its next game is Tuesday at rival North Carolina State, which upset of 7th-ranked Duke on Wednesday night. That starts a five-game stretch in which three are on the road — where North Carolina is 0-3 this year — and one is at home against the Blue Devils. The Tar Heels close with four of six on the road, ending with a trip to Duke. “We’ve just got to continue to work and continue to fight,” Thompson said. “That’s all you can do. You can’t give in just because you lose a couple of games. The storm doesn’t last forever.” ——— AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary contributed to this report.

Sudoku

Today’s answer

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19): Follow your instincts when it comes to love and personal relationships. Stick to people who have common interests and beliefs. Socializing will lead to a chance meeting with someone who has something worthwhile to offer. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may have to confront someone you care for in order to follow through with your plans. Anger will get you nowhere but generosity, understanding and the power of persuasion will help you get your way. An authoritative figure will have a change of heart. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can take care of any personal problems you face with someone you love or want to get into a relationship with by addressing issues head-on. Your intentions will be up for discussion and you’ll need to explain in depth to put the people you care about at ease. 4 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t overreact or become suspicious when there is nothing to worry about. You will cause problems at a personal level if you try to limit or restrict someone you love. You must hide your emotions even if it is difficult. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Avoid people who are always down-andout or negative. You need to keep a positive attitude if you want to excel. Take a creative approach to your money matters and you will find a way to make your dollars work for you. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Welcome any opposition and you will find out quickly whom you can trust. Changes to your current living arrangements will enable you to accommodate someone or something you want to pursue. Don’t

worry about complaints. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let anything slow you down or stand in your way. Take on whatever challenge you face and you will surprise someone you want to get to know better. An emotional situation will allow you to make a commitment and stabilize your future. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look forward with optimism and stop wasting your time living in the past. You can’t change what’s already happened but you can do something about the future. Conduct your plans with strength and courage until you reach your goals. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Love, romance and socializing will bring about opportunities to make significant personal changes. A short trip will pay off if you visit someone you miss or want to reconnect with. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have trouble handling your emotions, especially if you are upset about a financial, legal or health matter. You must face problems head on and refuse to let anyone criticize or bring you down. 2 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s vital that you keep moving forward so that you don’t slip back into old ways or habits. Someone you’ve known for a long time is interested in getting to know you better. Get back to doing the things you used to enjoy. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Limitations will prevail when dealing with a professional colleague or partner but, if you take action and show what you have to offer, you can make headway. Set new ground rules and make sure everyone involved in your plan gets equal billing. 3 stars
